Thank you for visiting my blog! Feel free to follow as I always aim to post several times a month.
I was born and raised in rural south-central Ohio about an hour south of Columbus. Shortly after obtaining a BA in Early Childhood Education from Wilmington College of Ohio, I taught K-4 Intervention in the Greenfield Exempted Village School District in Greenfield, Ohio for one year. After a year teaching in my native Ohio, I relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina after accepting a teaching position in the Wake County Public School System.
In Raleigh, I taught 3rd grade several years at Wilburn Year-Round Elementary later teaching 4th and 5th grades at Powell GT Magnet Elementary along with completing my administrative internship. I obtained my graduate degree in School Administration from NC State University.
I was the IRT and testing coordinator at Wendell Creative Arts and Science Magnet Elementary in Wendell, North Carolina for nearly two years prior to serving in my current role of Assistant Principal / IRT at Carroll Leadership in Technology Magnet Middle School in Raleigh.
In addition to my work in our school district, I’m involved in educational policy assisting with education advocacy organizations Public Schools First NC and the Public School Forum of North Carolina.
I have helped organize two EdCamps throughout North Carolina – EdCamp Wake (#EdCampWake) and EdCamp Leader (#EdCampLDR). I have presented numerous sessions at our district’s Convergence Symposiums as well as presenting several sessions at the 2017 NCTies Conference. I am scheduled to co-present at the 2018 ISTE Conference.
As a connected educator, I’ve moderated several state and national Twitter chats including #NCed, #EduGladiators, #NCsnowchat along with co-hosting the EduGladiators podcast.
You can connect with me on Twitter at @BrendanFetters and on Voxer at BrendanFetters.
I look forward to learning and growing together. KOKO. (Keep on keeping on)
